Sixers Sign Jarvis Varnado To 10-Day Contract

March 1 at 9:28am CST By Cray Allred

The Sixers have signed Jarvis Varnado to a 10-day deal, per a team release. Varnado is coming off a 10-day contract with the Bulls that just expired. The power forward joins Philadelphia on his 26th birthday, and will hope to see more minutes on a Sixers roster depleted of much NBA talent.

The shot-blocking specialist only played two minutes in a single game with Chicago, his only NBA action this season. He played in 13 games last year with the Heat and Celtics, averaging just in 0.6 points and 0.6 rebounds in 4.3 minutes per game. Varnado was a D-League All-Star selection this year, averaging 14.1 points, 11.0 rebounds, and 4.7 blocks with the Iowa Energy.

Varnado is a represented by Impact Sports Basketball, according to our Agency Database. While the Bulls had room on the roster to sign Varanado to either a second 10-day contract or a deal for the rest of the year, their recent agreement with Jimmer Fredette likely precluded that possibility. The Bulls are doing their best to stay under the luxury tax line.
